Profil

Our collective future depends upon business ideas becoming a means for building, financing, and implementing systemic solutions to the globe’s most pressing needs. The Skateroom challenges the status quo of brand and corporate responsibility, and turns consumers into active contributors in socially engaged projects. As a young certified B Corporation, The Skateroom project unites art buyers, artists, galleries, museums, foundations, retailers, and non-profits around the world in a new economic model — « Art for Social Impact ». Our “5:25” business model is simple: we unleash human creativity and the fruits of artistic labor to donate 5% of the turnover or 25% of the profit from every sale– whichever number is greater. Through our community’s support, we have so far raised over $615,000 to fund 30 social skate projects dedicated to empowering at-risk youth around the world. By placing works of art on responsibly made skateboards, The Skateroom connects people to the reality that Art for Social Impact is something achievable right now. The Skateroom exists to bring art into your life while bringing brighter possibilities to the lives of all.

Ambitions

The Shift aide ses membres à utiliser le cadre international des Objectifs de développement durable de l'ONU pour définir leurs ambitions sociales.

4. Quality education

The majority of the social project we support use skateboarding and education to empower at-risk youth, living in harsh conditions, with little access to education – especially girls.

5. Gender equality

Though many countries still exclude girls from practicing sports, our NGO partners achieve gender equality through the implementation of educational and inclusive programs.

10. Reduced inequalities

The Skateroom advocates and reinforces multi-stakeholder partnerships in support of social skate projects. In doing so, we contribute to building and renovating infrastructures that help reduce inequalities within countries. Particularly, with skateboarding now being a discipline at the Olympic Games, it is a national advantage to have these infrastructures and encourages further development.

12. Responsible consumption and production

The Skateroom offers an engaged form of consumption through our business model, turning customers into active contributors towards social causes.
